  1. Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Since I moved while my L322 is not drivable yet I still start it every day for a half hour to keep the battery up. It starts up really rough and you can tell it's running really rich, and the check engine light just bounces on and off. After about 15 minutes it will level out and idle normal...

    My EAS system is inactive right now. The LR mechanic said the ECU is unresponsive and recommended replacement. After a $1200 steering column (oh and did I mention I've owned it for all of two weeks now) I am reluctant to turn around spend $500 t0 $1000 again this month. Before anyone says...

    I just got the oil pan back on, filled it with oil, and this thing sounds weird. Definately something rotating badly. I'm going to pull the belt just to be sure though. What's your opinion. Youtube might still be turning the video. sorry for it being sideways.

    I just want to say some things are easier to fix than you realize and don't assume some previous owners were all that honest. We bought our 95 LWB in 2008 and we have added 80,000 miles to the 135K it had. Really love this vehicle, but the TC (Traction Control) light has always been on. The...

    2006 RR HSE- I have a small leak in my cooling system. I think I've traced it to the top portion of this hose. Where the plastic piece meets with the metal part. I've linked a part that is just like the one I'm talking about. It has a metal clip that slides on it to keep it connected. It...

    Hi all, The window ECU is failing on my '93 LWB. I've been unable to find a good source for a replacement so am left with the options of bypass or repair. Which is the easiest path here? I'm 99% certain the issue is in the ECU, not the wiring. I'd prefer to get the ECU fixed but frankly have...

    Hello RR owners and fans. peace love and all that hippie crap. Just picked up a 97 maybe 98 4.6 HSE from a relative that likes to destroy good stuff. As the title says I looked under the hood and thought "hey, not bad, no air pump, pretty open area around fuel rail and intake, this might be a...

    Did some more diagnosis on the issue I'm having with stalling at idle. Once the car is warmed up I'm getting the noise in the video - you can also hear how the engine is struggling to maintain idle. It will idle much better if I advance the timing quite a bit (probably another 15 degrees - off...

    I'll start by say that I may just have been unlucky but I've been through 2 Nissen rad for my 4.6 hse this year. I put in the first one as a routine maintenance item after doing head gaskets, but after a month water starts running out of the bottom joint between the core and the bottom...

    2003 range rover w/ 140k miles. My wife was driving on the freeway and heard the coolant bell and saw that the rover was overheating. She pulled over and shut it off to cool down. then it wouldn't start again - it would click but not turn over. Then after a few minutes it started again, but ran...

    When i boot the old girl into kickdown so she's pulling over 4000rpm, I'm getting serious vibration somewhere. I'm thinking propshaft, driveshafts or something similar. If I just sit and rev her over 4000rpm, no vibration. I'm not sure that this hasn't occurred after greasing her nipples...

    It's been a while since I posted. I'm NOT the RR expert (to offer advice), and I didn't have any issues/questions. Seems it was only a matter of time. I replaced the air shocks back in the fall, and all of a sudden (few weeks ago), the light indicator on the dash (by the up/down switch) would...

    Can a bad brake accumulator prevent ABS pump from operating? Or is this more likely due to a bad ABS pressure switch? Relay checks out OK (relay test becnh test OK, and I have 12v at the control pin). Pump operates if I jump it at the relay pins. Can a collapsed accumulator force the...

    P38, 2001 model with BMW diesel, 150 000 km:A few days ago with a lukewarm engine I tried to start the engine, but by mistake pulled back the ignition key just when the starter motor engaged. I then did a proper starting sequence and the engine started, but with a rattling sound as if all the...

    I get into my RRS last night and was unable to shift out of Park. No warnings on the dashboard but instead the trigger on the shift knob feels broken and lacks tension to be able to push it in. Im hoping its just a bad trigger and not a gear box failure. I had to get towed to the dealer this...

    Hello Fellas- New owner of a 2002 P38 for about a week now. The RR was overheating, a bit this past week. Looked at many things, finally it was the water pump. On Friday, it was running fair, not great, and the water pump finally gave out and radiator fluid went every where, the serpentine...

    I have about 1000 miles on new Hawk ceramic pads at all four corners. Stock rotors with 62,000 miles and specs checked out fine so I reused them. I went through the bedding process the night I installed them and everything was quiet for the first 500 miles. Then I started developing a squeal...
